Our 8th Annual Operation Diaper Drive will take place October 1-31st, 2023!
Please help us reach our goal of collecting 200,000 diapers through sponsorship and donations.
YPN, in partnership with the Eastern Iowa Health Center and HACAP, will host Operation Diaper Drive throughout the month of October. This community-wide effort’s goal is to stock the Eastern Iowa Diaper Bank with a one-year supply of diapers and wipes. Sponsors and business partners are invited to host collection bins and raise funds to help us purchase diapers.
A huge thank you to everyone who supported the 2022 Operation Diaper Drive. Last year we collected more than 165k diapers and we plan to beat that number in 2023!
Diapers are one of the most basic needs for a family with a new baby. On average, a monthly supply of diapers costs $80. Add that up and one year of diapers costs nearly $1,000! Families with low-income spend nearly 14% of their paychecks on diapers. Most daycare centers require parents to provide a daily supply of diapers. When families don’t have enough diapers, parents have to decide between childcare and working or going to school.
